I am sailing, I am sailing home again ‘cross the sea.
I am sailing stormy waters, to be near you, to be free.
I am flying, I am flying like a bird ‘cross the sea.
I am flying passing high clouds, to be near you, to be free.
I am dying, forever trying to be with you; who can say?
We are sailing stormy waters, to be near you, to be free.
Oh Lord, to be near you, to be free.
Main Riff (aka Chorus)
Hit the Road Jack and don’t cha come back
No more no more no more no more,
… Chorus …
You’re the [Am] meanest old [G] woman that I [F] ever have [E] seen,
Well I [Am] guess if [G] you say [F] so [E]
I’ll [Am] have to pack my [G] things and [F] go [E] that's right
“What’d you SAY?!?!”
… Chorus …
Now [Am] Baby, listen [G] Baby, don’t you [F] treat me this-a [E] way
‘Cause [Am] I’ll be [G] back on my [F] feet some[E]day,
Don't [Am] care if you [G] do, cause it's [F] under[E]stood,
You [Am] got no [G] money, and you [F] just ain't no [E] good
I’ll [Am] have to pack my [G] things and [F] go that's [E] right
… Chorus …
Repeat [Am] [G] [F] [E] …
Uh, what you say?
I didn’t understand you.
You can’t mean that …
Aw now Baby, Please.
What you tryin to do to ME!?”
No woman, no cry,
No woman, no cry.
No woman, no cry. Said, said,
Said I remember when we used to sit
In the government yard in Trench town
Ob – Observing the hypocrites, yeah,
Mingle with the good people We meet, yeah,
Good friends We have or good friends we’ve lost
Along the way, yeah!
In this great future, you can’t forget your past
So dry your tears I say
Here little darling don’t shed no tears
And then Georgie would make the fire light
As it was like a wood burning through the night
Then We would cook corn meal porridge
Of which I’ll share with You
My feet is my only carriage, and so
I’ve got to push on through. But while am gone
Ev’rything’s gonna be alright. Ev’rything’s gonna be alright.
Ev’rything’s gonna be alright ya. Ev’rything’s gonna be alright so
No woman, no cry
No my little sister don’t shed no tears
Oh my little darlin’ don’t shed no tears
Little darlin’ don’t shed no tears
Little sister don’t shed no tears
